Queen of My Heart

"Queen of Hearts"
12" x 16"
Arches 140 lb. cold press
watercolor and pastel mix

This is my granddaughter Sterling, who had a couple
of Halloween costumes this past year.  Several great
photos were sent my way and I put this one
in the digital divide.  It worked perfect for the
textured watercolor under painting I completed 
several weeks ago.
That 'bright light' hitting her face (I think she was
standing in front of the TV) was hard to
translate without changing it totally.  Light
can hit the eye that intensely from the giant screens.
But, I like the effect of the bright rimming light
on her turned kept it that way
and tried hard to make it seem real
and not creepy.
